Cats and kittens for adoption this week

We get all cats vet checked prior to adoption to make sure that we comply to the standards required by any pet shop. We have adopted out well over 1200 cats over the last 12 years and only a very very small percentage having developed any illness as a result of the change in environment but now we are being extremely careful. All our animals are microchipped, immunised and desexed as soon as possible after they arrive. Our re-homing number is 251000043.

Miss Gidgi arrived as her owner could not keep her as his girlfriend is allergic to cats so we agreed to take her. She is so friendly, affectionate, loves cuddles and is absolutely fine with other cats. She likes living indoors, but as she is a good mouser needs a little time outside after she has gotten to know you. In this cold weather she loves to sit on window ledge to watch the world go by. She has been desexed immunised and chipped and is ready for her special new home. 900079000630587.

Sabre came to us as her owners marriage broke up and she had to find somewhere else to live. He is extremely loving, gentle, active, playful young cat who has been desexed, vaccinated and micro-chipped ready for her new home as are her whole family. 900079000382867.

Toshi and her three siblings came at the same time as Erica and her family. They were found out near Clarence Way not far from a creek in the bush, they were young and friendly not at all wild. They were picked up put in a box and left at our gate with the hope we would find them before the dogs or the eagles. They are only slightly younger than Erik and his family. All are black with little tiny tufts of white in their ears or their chest or under their chin with the exception of Toshi. They are all very friendly affectionate young cats. They are all desexed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, regularly wormed and deflead ready for their new homes. 900079000382720.

Dogs for adoption for this week:

We get all dogs vet checked prior to adoption to make sure that we comply to the standards required by any pet shop. All our animals are microchipped, immunised and desexed as soon as possible after they arrive. All dogs are also tested to make sure that they do not have heart worm. We have rescued and adopted out well over 1300 dogs over the last 12 years. Our re-homing number is 251000043.

Neo has gone from pillar to post, home to home, and has never had a stable environment. A young person got as a pup and as he started to grow was not allowed to keep him so he gave him to a friend, the friend was not allowed to keep him either so gave him to a friend who then gave him to his father who already had two dogs so bought him here. Like all stiffies he much prefers to be with his human rather than share but he is learning as he is living in a yard with multiple dogs in that way we can give him time out when he needs it. He loves playing with the other dogs and also loves having your attention too. He is reasonably obedient when called. He is now chipped, immunised and desexed. He has a lovely nature and would make a great family dog, he could live with an older bitch if there was another dog. 900079000382713.

Hi my name is Tyson and I love to play ball. I will bring it to your feet and I will sometimes let you throw it for me and sometimes I will tease you by dropping the ball and as you pick it up I will beat you to it. It is only a game. I love it when you have a ball too! You throw it so I drop mine and chase you. I bring it back and find that you have picked up my ball and the game goes on. I am looking for an active family home where someone will play with me. I need to come in at night and have a dark room to sleep in as I love being near my family but I have been known to howl sometimes at dawn and dusk. I hope someone will love me forever as I am a very loyal and loving Dutch Shepherd. 953010000217938.

My name is Molly, I came here with five other greyhounds who were surrendered by their trainer because he could not care for us anymore. We have learnt to play and not take life so seriously any more. We love to zoom and can be mischievous at times. We love going for walks as long as it is not too far and playing with our toys. We are inquisitive putting our long noses into places we should not as we love learning new things. We can be very lazy and just want to sleep in the sun or to be lounge lizards when we can. We make excellent companions as we loved to be stroked. I love it when my carer comes to sit with me and I just put my head in her lap. I am very loving and affectionate and just happy just to keep my carer company. 956000003650003.
